The deep fried pizza can be considered as a certainty and an institution.
A simple and poor traditional food, that, with very few ingredients, can solve the problem of preparing a meal.

The deep fried pizza is a further evidence of the creativity of Neapolitans in times of crisis.
At the end of World War II the city was devoid of everything. Even the Neapolitan pizza had almost become something just for rich people because, as it is well known, in order to prepare it, you needed a wood oven, and topped with mozzarella and tomato, which were often unavailable or very costy however.
You needed to think about something easy to prepare and to sell out but also for those who had to buy it.
For this reason, deep fried pizza, is still today perceived as the “poor sister of baked pizza”.

The most famous deep fried pizza was the so called “pizza a otto” literally “pizza to eight “, eaten immediately but paid eight days later. That’s how the Neapolitan he invented the “deep fried pizza”, also called “people’s pizza” because it was sold by the streets by women, to round off the family economy in the difficult post-war period.
